L-P Archaeology has started a lovely multimedia blog covering their work on Prescot Street.
They have a nice overview of the site, videos, and blogs from the excavators. My friend Anies is doing a great job with the filming there, and he mentions how difficult it is to record while you have several other duties as an excavator–something I will have to face over the summer. Fully integrating video recording into the excavation process might be a pipe dream, but it’s wonderful to see it popping up in the “real world” at a contract excavation. The only thing I might add is a creative commons license on their flickr stream. Overall, a great example of how to set up a dig blog for outreach.
In other news, I’ve managed to get sick for the fourth time this semester, one week away from taking my oral examinations. I’m usually completely healthy–it might be that I’ve been under a bit of pressure, perhaps?
One thought on “Prescot Street”
Since that’s the kind of thing I’d like to start doing at my company, I’ll definitely be checking this out and interested in the challenges of recording and excavating.
